Beta testing new versions of the YouTube iOS App through TestFlight 1 Recommended Answer 6 Replies 50 Upvotes

Apple operates a program called TestFlight to help iOS developers more easily test their apps and collect feedback before releasing an official version of the app. YouTube uses TestFlight to test out Beta versions of our YouTube app before releasing it on the App Store. 

Sign up to be an iOS beta tester through TestFlight here: https://previewapps.withgoogle.com/

While TestFlight allows people to “test” in-app purchases on Beta versions of our YouTube app, it doesn't actually allow real in-app purchases to be made – it should not charge anyone even if it looks like you’re going through a typical “purchase” flow. 

If you’re using TestFlight, but would like to make real purchases through YouTube (like Super Chats), you’ll need to switch to the official version of the YouTube app (from the App store), rather than using the Beta version through TestFlight.

  • When you download the official YouTube app directly from the App store, this non-test version will replace the TestFlight version of the YouTube app that you have installed, and you’ll be able to make purchases like normal.

  • If you make this switch, you won’t be removed from the TestFlight program and the Beta version of the YouTube app will still be available for you to re-download through TestFlight until it expires 90 days after it was originally released by YouTube.

Hope this info is useful!

Welp, it was fun playing with “test” Super Chats and renting movies for free while it lasted :/

I do understand why renting movies for free needed to be blocked, but couldn’t you have kept the the “test” Super Chat? It didn’t hurt.

You should allow us to test the Super chat service because it allow for any errors test befor release. Ive heard from serveral streamers saying donations can take up to 2 hours to show up on feed. You need to unblock it for better testing>.
